Kannappa Gudi

No visit to Sri Kalahasti becomes complete without availing the darsan of Kannappa at his mandir atop the hillock, lying very close to the eastern side of the main mandir. It is said that the very spot made sacrosanct by his offering eyes to Lord Maheswar, is now enshrining his image for worship. Realising the infinite glory and peerless sacrifice he demonstrated, princes and philanthropists raised a modest shrine to perpetuate his apurva bhakti. Recently, the temple administration has undertaken the electrification of the path to enabling the visitors to go up and offer prayers even during late evenings.

It is a single - celled mandir adorned with the installation of Kannappa's icon in standing posture. It faces east. The making of the icon is so superb that a single sight flashes across the mind his whole life from birth till merging in Bhagawan Paramasiva. Normally pious bhaktas pray to him with burning of camphor; for, the priest stays during certain hours only.
